6 Cigar Humidification Methods

Now you have a good comprehension of exactly what a hygrometer does and what can occur if your humidity is too high or too low, let's discuss how to actually control the humidity in your humidor. Unfortunately, you can not just use a moist paper towel in a ziplock bag...

1. The Hockey Puck Humidification Method
The unofficial hockey puck method was my first means to control the humidity in my humidor and boy was it stressful. This is actually the"puck" that is included with humidors the majority of the time and needs you to soak it in propylene glycol. I discovered it for a little bit of a guessing game since you have to be sure your"puck" doesn't run out of juice. It was mostly stressful since I used the free version in my humidor so results may vary. I found that I had to soak the puck every 15 days or so using a humidor of 30 cigars. But after I upgraded to a Xikar puck, it was smooth sailing. I just had to re-soak every 30-45 days and found it to be much more consistent. Soaking a humidor puck is very easy. It takes about 30 seconds and you simply buy the propylene glycol separately. This remedy is odorless and just replaces water as a pure form of moisture. Using tap water can create issues due to chlorine or other substances, and bottled water won't stay moist as long as propylene glycol.

2. The Tubes or Mini Jars Cigar Humidification Method
Xikar and Drymistat make very easy to use products which you can just open and pop it in a humidor such as this
air purifier for smoke. These have a much more controlled way of managing humidity than the puck technique. The only bad thing is you need to replace these entirely the majority of the time every 3-6 weeks completely. I don't advise attempting to"re-soak" them with the propylene glycol. The attractiveness of these, particularly the tubes is they don't occupy much space in your humidor. However, depending on the size, the jar arrangement may work better:

3. The Boveda Packs Cigar Humidification Method
Like the tubes or jar out of Xikar and Drymistat, it is possible to go with a very controlled system of Boveda humidity packs. These are my favorite cigar humidification strategy and ones that I utilize for my tupperdor today. But they can err a little on the large side in terms of humidity if you use them in a tupperdor. I'd like to go a few percentages lower in the desired humidity for a consequence if you have a tupperdor. (These packs are available in all different humidity levels.) Otherwise they do a fantastic job of absorbing humidity if it's too high and increasing if it's too low. As soon as your package is stiff, then you simply throw it off. That being said, many claim to have the ability to recharge these quite easily by simply soaking them for a couple of days once they get stiff. Even though this might be a terrific way to spend less, the recharged packs certainly won't be as accurate as a first. To discover more about how to recharge, take a look at this YouTube tutorial. For me personally, I really don't recharge since I'm going to spend hundreds of dollars on cigars, I don't want to cut any corners to save a couple bucks on Boveda packs.

4. The Heartfelt Beads Humidification Method
Heartfelt beads are a common humidity method that many advocate across java forums. This provider revolves round these beads and they've a lot of diehard followers for their product. These are popular with larger humidors or wineadors. These are probably one of the more expensive options but last forever. They do need spraying of water following two or week though so you have to abide by a schedule. This method is somewhat more geared towards the advanced cigar collectors. Typically, cigar collectors will have a pouch of those a layer at the bottom of the wineador.

5. The Electric Cigar Humidification Method
There is nothing better than the place it and overlook a electric humidifier, especially if you have a big or valuable collection. All these are a little expensive compared to the other choices such as
newair 250 but there is the benefit of very little maintenance. The units work great if plugged -- so you will be required to run a flat cord to the outside of your humidor. However a few of these units have a few really cool features like wi-fi capacities and can humidify around 1,000 cigars! (That would be a lot of Boveda packs...) You really do have to replace the cartridge every 6 -- 12 weeks but it's comparatively inexpensive.

6. The Kitty Litter Cigar Humidification Method
For a larger wineador setup, many recommend kitty litter as a viable choice to control humidity. I have never done this but many swear by it. This is a really similar method to the Heartfelt beads strategy outlined previously. The key is to obtain a kitty litter without a odor and spray on distilled water every two to three weeks as needed. I have seen very positive reviews out of Exquisicat Crystals with very low dust nor odor.
